On tap during Madison Craft Beer Week. Dark black body. Big cinnamon spice aroma. Umm, Cinnamon Toast Crunch in a glass? Ok, so not everybody agreed with me on that statement, but to me this beer tasted like the the milk left in the bowl after eating all the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Really wonderful.

Pours a dark brown, which settles into the glass with a cola-colored body and a thin tan head. Aroma is all over the place. Vanilla is strong, hints of smokey peppers, dashes of spices (nutmeg?), even a hint of a minty herbal quality. Wow, after the pour and the nose I did not expect such big, potent flavors. Vanilla, spice, roasted peppers, all big and all in harmony. Some unsweetened Cocoa comes through as well. Feel is medium-full bodied, but not thick. Medium carbonation and a slight lingering burn. Not sure if it's the pepper heat, or the abv (thinking the latter). This is a rich and robust stout with some big flavors. Not sure where the mint was coming from, but it seemed to linger for me throughout. I think I like Huna a tad more, but this is impressive. A side-by-side of the two would be amazing.

Chili in the aftertaste was a bit overpowering but otherwise great. Left me wishing it wasn't so busy.

Aroma is close to mint. Throws the whole experience off. Nice chili flavor.
